Trentino, Italy (Summer)

Why BCA Trentino?

  • Trentino and its capital city, Trento, have been topping Italian quality of life indexes for years.
  • Live and study in an off-the-beaten-track location and immerse yourself in Italian culture.
  • Take the course Sustainability, Food and Landscapes in the Italian Alps, which combines interactive classwork and outdoor educational activities in a cohesive program, tackling issues of global concern from the perspective of the Italian Alps.
  • Trentino is rich in internationally acclaimed food specialties, such as one of the only three official varieties of Parmesan cheese, the northernmost production of olive oil in the world, award-winning wines, and protected brands of apples.
  • Trentino hosts four prestigious UNESCO recognitions: sections of two World Heritage Sites (the Dolomites and the Alpine Prehistoric Pile Dwellings), one Man and the Biosphere Reserve (the Ledro Alps and Judicaria), as well as one Global Geopark (the Adamello Brenta Nature Park).
  • Trentino is strategically situated on one of the major corridors that connect Italy with Northern Europe; thanks to efficient high-speed trains, major Italian cities (Verona, Venice, Milan, Florence, Rome), Austria and Germany are just a few hours away

Why Attend an Italy Summer Program?

  • Attending a summer program enables you to earn academic credits and develop your language skills outside the school year.
  • A BCA summer program gives you the opportunity to study abroad, even if it does not fit into your busy academic calendar.
  • Studying abroad over the summer allows you to travel and explore other cultures, while not missing sports, clubs, performances, social events and more on your home campus.
  • If you’re an athlete, a summer program may enable you to study abroad during off-season and not miss any pre-season training.
  • A summer program may be a more affordable option for you than a full semester!
  • The shorter time frame may be a better fit for non-traditional students, who cannot leave a job, their family or other obligations for an extended period of time.
  • Or you can use our summer program, as a launching point for another study abroad experience in a future term!
